Taste American Gra-Frutti at Whole Foods in Duluth tomorrow!

The Whole Foods in Duluth, GA is hosting a Livin' Local tasting event on July 10th from 10 am to 5 pm. Not all vendors will be sampling gluten-free products but from 10-4, American Gra-Frutti will sampling some of their wares. Everything the Marietta, GA company makes is gluten-free. If you haven't tried their products yet (and you live in the Atlanta area), you're really missing out! Atlanta area Whole Foods locations and Return to Eden have been selling American Gra-Frutti products for a while now, and the company sent out a press release yesterday about them rolling out to all Southeast Region Whole Food locations! Below is an excerpt from the notice.      

The “You Love Chocolate Chip” cake and cupcake, as well as the “They’ll Never Know” spice cake, flavored with carrots, squash and spinach, are now on sale at Whole Foods Markets in Georgia, Alabama, South Carolina, Tennessee and North Carolina.  Both cakes, topped with a decadent dairy-free frosting, can be purchased as a “grab and go” individual cupcake, a cupcake four pack, or a 5” two-layer cake.
All American Gra-Frutti products are produced in a dedicated, gluten-free facility by company Founder and Chief Creative Officer, Marilyn Santulli. The American Gra-Frutti bake shop is located in Marietta, Ga., and American Gra-Frutti products are sold around metro Atlanta including Whole Foods Markets, Harry’s Farmer’s Markets in East Cobb and Alpharetta, Turner Field, Return 2 Eden, and Life Grocery.   American Gra-Frutti products are also sold at MOM’S Organic Markets in Maryland, and Abbey’s Health Food Store in Tampa, Fla.
Many American Gra-Frutti products are free of dairy (and some other things like MSG, HFCS and artificial colors/flavors) but my fave product from the line is not dairy free. It's the Peachtree Pimento cheese spread. It's a pimento cheese with a twist as there is no mayo in it! Using it to make cheese grits might change your life! Did you know that I am considered a G.R.I.T.S. myself? Yes, I'm a GIRL that was born and RAISED IN THE SOUTH. There is a whole line of products with the slogan on it, but somehow I've never even bought a t-shirt. In case you didn't know, in the South, we're girls until we stop breathing. OK - back to American Gra-Frutti products - try them - you'll like them. No, you'll probably LOVE them - and that goes for people that can eat gluten too!

*I've reviewed this product line several times so you might see a quote from me on the American Gra-Frutti website. They are not a client of mine and I have no affiliation with them other than loving their fabulous products and sharing the news with others. Congrats to the gang at American Gra-Frutti for this big step in the distribution world! I can't wait to see what you create next!

Being gluten-free can still be challenging at times

After being gluten-free for over a decade, one would think there's nothing that would throw me.  From weddings to funerals to holiday pa...
